    Which CAM softwares should I consider?

    I am a one man shop with Mazak machines. I only use CAM for 3D surfacing. Mazatrol covers 90%+ of programming needs. Been using Mcam 9.1 but would like to be legit. Mcam is out of my price range. Any information/suggestions/experiences would be appreciated

    Hi,
    Fusion 360 is pretty fair, and about $600 per year, and so represents fair value.

    I used MasterCAM also, but not a legit copy either. I still prefer MasterCAM but cant afford it, so I ditched it and bought Fusion 360.

    Fusion has different modules, including an electronics/PCB module and an FEA module both of which I use extensively and so the breath of coverage of Fusion is
    appreciated and even better than MasterCAM.
